The Kind of Love That Saves


“Return home and tell how much God has done for you.”

~ Luke 8:39

Testimony Tuesdays!!! A testimony by definition is: a formal written or spoken statement, a public recounting of a religious conversion or experience. The Bible commands us in numerous places to bring praise, glory, and honor to our God by proclaiming, declaring, and telling about His marvelous works to others. That is the purpose and heart behind this installment for my Tuesday posts. Each Tuesday (more or less), a testimony will be shared here involving the recounting of salvation, redemption, overcoming, and/or healing just to name a few; A story that brings glory to our God and in which we might be encouraged, spurred on, and challenged with at the same time.The stories that will be shared will either be of my own personal experiences, excerpts from books, testimonies I find via youtube or other media sources, as well as YOURS! I would love to know and give you the opportunity to share here with us a testimony of your own, of whatever fashion that involves the Lord doing a transforming work in your life. Just email me your testimony and I will see what I can do about posting it on a future Tuesday! You may choose to have your name be known or anonymous. I look forward to hearing from you!


In the past, the kind of blog posts I would typically share around the time of Valentine's Day were blog posts featuring the Valentine's Day card creations I like to make each year for all my friends (they are pretty fantastic, you should check them out!) There is not much else this single girl has to offer that's worth sharing with the world wide web about this holiday, BUT this year I decided to post something a little different than what I normally do. 1.) because ain't nobody (me) got time to make Valentines Day cards this year, I'm in Israel! AND  2.) So I know today is not Tuesday, which is the day I usually save for sharing testimonies, but I thought I would take the opportunity to use this superfluous holiday to share with you about the truest love that I've found; the love that has transformed me, and saved me, and will forever be what I live for, regardless of what my marital status may be.

The love I speak of is that of Jesus Christ. Today I will be featuring a video of me sharing my testimony with a couple hundred students during the Ballet Magnificat Summer Dance Intensive this past summer. It is just a short compilation of snippets of me talking about my passion and love for Jesus, the one who so greatly loves me, and you, and all his creation. For a more extensive version of my testimony, to hear what God has brought me through, to get the 20-minute version of my story you may want to check out the following link of a blog post I shared in 2016 featuring a longer presentation of me speaking... if you can bear it. Hah! I am no public speaker but if ever I try, it is to make the glory of God known: My Story: The Testimony of Lillian Ortiz

Be Blessed!
